Why do RJ Guys Do This?

    I haven’t been very active on RJ, but I have noticed that some members frequently post as “Hidden Members,” especially in some recent threads characterized by less than pleasant interchange/argument between posters. Names that come quickly to mind (and there are lots of others I don't remember) are Pieceofme (Pieceofpie?) and Lazymars. While it is understandable that they may not wish to show their members (which they can easily hide by revealing their members only in Private Photos), why do they post as Hidden Members when everyone else on here can easily see who they are by using the Quote tab? People who are not RJ members can’t see the pics of these guys anyway. Just a little bit intellectually challenged?

    If you post as a hidden member, no one can email you after posting something. Also, if a lot of people have you on ignore, they will all see your post if done as a hidden profile. The actual people you are talking about, however, posted before hiding their profiles and at least one of those is probably not hidden, but was probably banned by administration

    Edit- One other thing about posting as a hidden profile- it prevents people from going to your profile and hitting the "report abuse" button.

    They can still report you by using the help button, but a lot of people don't know that.

    I've been wondering why everyone is so concerned about everyone else's profiles, and who's pretending to be who(m), and not just moving on with their lives. WHO CARES? Or better WHY CARE? In the grand scheme, none of this BS affects your life one bit, so just get over it. Sermon over.

    You can always hit "QUOTE" to a hidden member's post and the system will quote the guy and cite his screenname. Voila... revealed! icon_wink.gif

    i wonder about this as well. some people take such as such a personal affront icon_rolleyes.gif

    apparently the bs does affect them more than they claim it does.

    Pretty strange... if you can hold yourself "out to the public" whether in an argument or not is a little cowardly. Maybe they have a differing agenda, but still what does it say about who you are?
